EINSTEIN, ALBERT
Leipzig, 1906. First journal edition of Einstein s doctoral thesis, revised, and first edition of his second paper on Brownian motion. Signed and dated 1950 by Einstein on p. 289 at the beginning of his thesis. In this landmark work Einstein combined the techniques of classical hydrodynamics with those of the theory of diffusion to create a new method for the determination of molecular sizes and of Avogadro s number, a method he applied to solute sugar molecules. Einstein s concerns extended beyond this particular question to more general problems of the foundations of the theory of radiation and the existence of atoms. He later emphasized A precise determination of the size of molecules seems to me of the highest importance because Planck s radiation formula can be tested more precisely through such a determination through measurements on radiation. The dissertation also marked the first major success in Einstein s effort to find further evidence for the atomic hypothesis, an effort that culminated in his explanation of Brownian motion. By the end of 1905 he had published three independent methods for determining molecular dimensions (Stachel, Einstein s Miraculous Year. Five Papers that Changed the Face of Physics). Einstein s biographer, physicist Abraham Pais, observed: It is not sufficiently realized that Einstein s thesis is one of his most fundamental papers. Histories and biographies invariably refer to 1905 as the miraculous year because of his article on relativity, the light-quantum, and Brownian motion. In my opinion, the thesis is on a par with the Brownian mot … [Click Below for Full Description]

A photo album from the early 20th Century featuring hand colored photographs in and around San Francisco shortly before and after the Great Earthquake of 1906. The photographs are attractive and well-composed with nice hand coloring. The photographs at the beginning of the album are from the Muir Woods in California with the trees colored brown and red. Images show people on giant felled redwoods, walking around through the forest posing, and a group in an automobile riding down a forest trail. These are followed by images of Mission Santa Barbara, Mission San Gabriel, Santa Clara Mission, the Cathedral of San Carlos Borromeo in Monterey, and the Old Mission Santa Ines. There are more than a dozen images of natural wonders including mountains, lakes, farms, and the coastline, as well as sailboats, oil wells, and an ostrich farm. The latter half of the album features photographs of San Francisco after the recent earthquake in 1906, greatly contrasting with the first image in the album of a pristine skyline. The photographs show the true devastation of both the earthquake and fires in San Francisco during this time with images of several destroyed buildings including the San Francisco City Hall with onlookers surveying the damage.

ALAIN
Manuscrit autographe signé et titré « Propos d’un Normand ». S.l.n.d. (1906 - 1914) ; 2 pages in-8°. Manuscrit d’un article destiné à être publié dans la Dépêche de Rouen sous la série « Propos d’un Normand ». Alain défend la notion de paix au travers d’une politique militaire de défense face au désir de revanche contre l’Allemagne d’une partie des français: « Quelqu’un qui revient d’Allemagne et que l’on interrogeait sur l’état d’esprit des Allemands, tel qu’il se montre dans les conversations, répondait : C’est assez inquiétant ; les Allemands nous considèrent comme un peuple essentiellement guerrier, qui honore le métier militaire plus que tous les autres, et qui admet très bien que le pouvoir militaire se mette au dessus des lois. Ils croient que personne chez nous ne peut accepter les défaites de 1870, et que nous aurions déjà fait la guerre, si la forte population de l’Allemagne et son organisation militaire ne refroidissaient pas nos espérances. D’ailleurs les preuves ne leur manquent pas ; ils n’ont qu’à citer quelques articles et quelques discours, qu’ils trouvent en France. Les Français, disent-ils, ne sont sensibles qu’à un genre s’éloquence, qui est la colère patriotique. Cela montre bien ce qu’ils feraient, s’ils pouvaient. C’est pourquoi, ajoutent-ils, nous paierons ce qu’il faudra. Nous ne voulons pas revoir les jours d’Iéna et Austerlitz ». Chez nous on entend des discours du même genre, où l’on commence toujours par dire bien haut que la France est, vraiment attachée à la paix. Et l’on nous représente une Allemagne toujours frémissante, toujours prête à lan … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is the lowest printing of any Jack London title, and one of the four rarest being The Cruise of the Dazzler, Scorn of Women, Theft and The Acorn Planter.

HUGNET Georges (1906-1974). Poète surréaliste, écrivain, dramaturge, graphiste et cinéaste français. Lettre autographe signée « Georges », sans lieu ni date, à un « cher ami », 2 pages 1/2 in-4 (bords effrangés). Très belle et longue lettre de Georges Hugnet. « Aragon est un homme léger (...) avec qui on ne peut pas avoir de conversation grave et moins encore de conversation futile... » « Mon cher ami, Ne vous occupez pas plus de Solesmes que du Sélect, de Reverdy que d'Aragon. Occupez-vous de vous-même, vous savez dans quel sens. Aragon est un homme léger (le Surréalisme nous a fait perdre en lui un chroniqueur mondain, - doit-on lui en vouloir ou l'en remercier ?) avec qui on ne peut pas avoir de conversation grave et moins encore de conversation futile (Oui). Et Reverdy est un poète médiocre à qui la religion a fait perdre tout son intérêt pour moi de violence et d'une certaine grandeur - qu'il avait. Et ne me reprochez pas le Select (célèbre café du boulevard Montparnasse à Paris) où je viens prendre des nouvelles fraîches de la maladie des autres et où je fais prendre à mon « mal » davantage de gravité. Je vous suis apparu comme j'apparais à beaucoup - sinon à tous - avec mon armure. Mais si pour vous je la retire c'est pour que vous voyiez au moins les blessures de mon corps. J'entretiens certaines atmosphères que je hais, le plus mauvais de moi-même et l'y abandonne. Et personne ne me connait. Je laisse un mannequin qui sait parler tous les langages et qu'on juge. J'ai mes amis et pour ceux-là seuls je « suis ». Il est bien malheureux que vous n'ayez pas vu Georges N … [Click Below for Full Description]
